Mike Liberty’s design trip through Brazil, Uruguay, and Argentina was the inspiration behind the recent Akomplice collection. Much of the range is themed around the juxtaposition between the inner and outer journey for happiness. A standout piece is the Pepe Mujica tee, which was conceived after Mike met Uruguay’s previous president Jose (Pepe) Mujica. 90% of profits from the sale of this tee will be donated to Jose Mujica’s charity of choice. The graphics collection also showcases stabs at fast fashion and how the industry often preys on human insecurities in order to sell products. Keep your third eye open. Salutes from the Akomplice family. Check here for the full collection look.

This season is a testament to style, comfort, and sustainability. We hope you enjoy. See the full range on our webstore.
See below our just released winter Camo Capsule collection. Camouflage is timeless, however, it’s often re-created with the same aesthetic. For this reason, we wanted to innovate a camo that took steps into uncharted territory. We created an oversized and subdued camouflage pattern for a flannel-lined heavy weight trench coat and a down winter jacket. The oversized and subdued concepts are carried through to the t-shirts of this collection. The standout being a thick knit camo tee that is made with heavy gauge yarn, a first of its kind, pushing the idea of what a camo t-shirt can be. Evolution through innovation. View the entire collection at our webstore here.
For our latest collaboration release we tap the creative musician/artist GRiZ. The project features a nylon baseball jacket aptly titled “The Love Jacket.” For the lookbook we decided to show a behind the scenes look at one of GRiZ’s sold out shows, taking you through the catacombs of the world famous Red Rocks Amphitheater. More than product and a photo story, the project serves as a protest to the current political state of affairs, with “LOVE” emblazoned across the back, and “Unity Gang” across the left bicep.
The jacket is available now on our webstore.

100% OF PROFITS DONATED TO STANDING ROCK:
Over the past weeks the Akomplice crew has been reaching out to help support the Standing Rock movement. Last weekend we organized 1000’s of apples to be sent to the Standing Rock community kitchens. Today we release an AKOMPLICE project aimed to inspire unity for this cause and all causes related to human rights and environmental protection. The profits will be used to help the protest continue through the winter by supplying items to winterize the Oceti Sakowin Camp. The money will also be used to purchase food and kitchen supplies for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.

Presented for the first look is an Akomplice/VSOP lookbook from Buenos Aires, shot and directed by Ana Beatriz Mayr and Claudia Beatriz Smith. The lookbook features pieces from our Autumn range, worn by creative Nico Barraza and Colombian cohort Andres Sanmartin. The photo journal was shot against the historic Parque de la Memoria in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The photos set aim to accentuate the geometric architecture and the shadows created therefrom, giving focus to each piece and look. The range includes woven and knit tops, fleece knit bottoms, and a pair of fleece overalls. Many of the fabrics displayed are crafted with a hand wash / dye treatment, giving each piece slightly different characteristics. The majority of the collection is made using organic cotton / recycled plastic bottle polyester, and is almost entirely Fair Trade certified, assuring worker and environmental protection.
